TRANSFER ROUND-UP: Vol. 1


Check out the latest Milan transfer news and rumors!

New volumes to be posted in order to make the 2010 blog’s tradition come alive. We bring you all the past transfer rumors regarding Milan…

– The three January signings plan

Milan have plans to make three signings in January – but on a limited budget. Corriere dello Sport says the Italian giants are seeking a new defensive midfielder, a midfield utility and also cover for the attack.

They will work at the lower end of the market hoping to reinforce Massimiliano Allegri’s squad on a tight budget.

– Guardiola & Cesc, once again…

Milan’s officials are working frantically behind the scenes on a deal for Pep Guardiola, as we have reported before. Now as part of the negotiations with the Spaniard there is the promise that they will seek to bring Cesc Fabregas as one of his first signings.

The former Arsenal captain has been a long-term target for Milan’s Berlusconi, who tried for him last year until it became apparent that he only wanted to return home to the Nou Camp.

– Boateng: Off-shape, in-interest

Bayern Munich are lining up a January raid for Milan’s midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng.

According to Mediaset, the Bavarian want to unite Prince with his brother, Jerome, and has the spending power to convince Milan to sell.

– Goalkeeper’s (unneeded) youngster revolution

The agent of Pescara goalkeeper Mattia Perin has revealed Milan interest. “There has been no contact , but Mattia is very happy with the links,” Matteo Roggi told Spazio Milan.

–  The probable Abbiati successor

In relation to the previous headline – Milan to scout Basel’s goalkeeper Yann Sommer and midfielder Marcelo Diaz, as Calciomercato reports.

After rumors of interest for the Swiss ‘keeper, Milan scouts have scheduled a visit to the Alpines for Basel’s Europa League clash with Racing Genk on Thursday.

– Anderson to restart the Brazilian tradition?

Milan seemed to be giving up on Brazilian talents and stars. However, Calciomercato says that Manchester United’s midfielder Anderson has been included in Milan’s wish list.

The Rossoneri have even contacted the English side in order to get some enquirers for the 24-year-old, who is valued at €12 million.

– The Argentine highly regarded talent

The last Calciomercato report – Boca Junior’s Leandro Daniel Paredes is on Italian runner-up trail.

The 18-year-old Argentinian attacking midfielder has been scouted by Milan’s representatives in Buenos Aires against San Martin. Paredes, who is often compared to former teammate Juan Roman Riquelme is valued at €10 million.

– Kagawa was hard to get, but Takahashi Milan-bound?

Sky Deutschland suggests that Tokyo’s midfielder Hideto Takahashi has attracted Milan’s attention. Borussia Monchengladbach, Hamburg and Manchester United are also interested in the 24-year-old Japanese international.

That is all for now Rossoneros & Rossaneras! Stay tuned to find out what will follow in Volume 2…

  1. “Corriere dello Sport says the Italian giants are seeking a new defensive midfielder, a midfield utility and also cover for the attack.”
    Another defensive midfielder? Nigel, Strasser, Sulley and Traoré are not enough?

    Pep&Cesc would be a dream! Hope we can have cash flexibility to sign both.

    And I really really like Paredes, Diaz, Perin and Sommer. Tutti mi piacciono da morrire, as the Italians say.

    Takahashi I really don know.

    And I scheduled TiVo to record Napoli vs. PSV today in order to scout Strootman.

    Last but not least: Anderson?? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    • Haha I was wondering the same… Why would we possibly need another DMF?? Has Allegri gone wild or probably fallen in love with them? He was crying out for one the whole summer – he got it at the end, though we already have Montolivo.
      I like Fabregas, but his attitude is just… not for Milan. We already have players who want to be above the staff and suggest their own positions. I just miss those times when we used to have calm players, who always used to do what it was told them to do and not complain about anything or get into fights during a match (except for Gattuso)… or players who never dived nor acted. Sth I don’t like is what Fab did against Sevilla – ridiculous. At least he could have apologized, but no! I guess, the pride is sth that a human being cannot quit. Instead, he kept on saying how he really got kicked in the face… oh right, so we’re supposed to be the fools now? :/
      Watched some of Diaz’s skills earlier today… the man reminds me of Pirlo. He’s got a great shot, a great level of precision, plays with both left and right foot, takes free kicks (successfully) and penalties as well. In my opinion, he’s the utility player that our squad would always dream of and now has the chance to get him.
      As for Perin, I kinda got disappointed when he conceived that 40m. goal in the under-21 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acAlAP0hzDg. No matter how good he is dubbed to become I’d still prefer Gabriel. If we don’t try, we will never now… I can’t wait for the cup to kick off so that i’ll get to see him play – my prediction was right, MilanNews.it reported that he will probably debut in the cup once it begins.
